Loud and proud to help

North Coast Times - - FRONT PAGE -

BRIGHTLY coloured tops filled an Alki­mos school on Fri­day’s Loud Shirt Day fundraiser for the Telethon Speech and Hear­ing. St James’ Angli­can School hosted the Novem­ber 10 fundraiser to sup­port pre-pri­mary stu­dent Harry Brock­lesby (6), who goes to the cen­tre two days a week and is pic­tured with Al­fie Gal­loway and Wy­att Wor­ley. When Harry started at the cen­tre he was a quiet three-year-old who could not say his own name, but is now a talk­a­tive child thanks to the lan­guage de­vel­op­ment sup­port he has re­ceived. The $870.40 raised will help Telethon Speech and Hear­ing pro­vide the in­ten­sive ther­apy ser­vices to chil­dren with hear­ing, speech or lan­guage im­pair­ments.
